Some moisture for the work week after a hot Monday

Sunday, July 16, 2023

Temperatures in Steamboat Springs are near eighty degrees under mostly sunny skies early this Sunday afternoon, on their way to the upper eighties. Monday will be the hottest day of the summer so far with high temperatures breaching the ninety degree mark before some moisture makes it overhead by later Tuesday. Look for still warm, but decreasing, high temperatures this work week bottoming out in the low eighties by Thursday along with increasing chances of showers from Tuesday afternoon through Thursday night.

A storm is currently approaching the Vancouver coast while a persistent vortex of cold air still extends southward from Hudson Bay through the Great Lakes. A ridge of high pressure over the West sandwiched between these features is forecast to be pushed to the east by the Vancouver storm and be directly overhead on Monday, leading to the hottest day of the summer so far with high temperatures in the low nineties, almost ten degrees above our average of 84 F.

Some moisture originally from the south rotating clockwise around the high pressure will be encouraged to move over our area from the west as that Vancouver storm travels across the northern Rockies through midweek. High temperatures on Tuesday will fall back into the upper eighties as clouds invade the area along with a modest chance of showers by later afternoon and overnight.

An increasing chance of showers exists for Wednesday as temperatures cool further back toward average. Our best, but still modest, chance for precipitation this week should be on Thursday along with continued average temperatures as that original Vancouver storm eventually makes it to the Great Lakes.

Longer range weather forecast models have a decreasing chance of showers and slowly rising temperatures as we head into next weekend, and I’ll have more details about that in my next regularly scheduled weather narrative on Thursday afternoon.
